Philmore Productions blocking whole area codes

It has come to my attention that Philmore Productions customer service is now blocking full blown area codes from accessing the platform. On May 30th, a customer notified me of this issue through another contact method. They were once able to access the system, but now has to access the system a different way through a completely different app.

We’ve talked about Philmore Productions in a negative light before, and I’d rather talk about Philmore in a great light. The problem is, that Philmore Productions and their customer service team doesn’t know how to do things the right way. You don’t block full area codes, and you don’t just block just because. Customers from the same area are now going to be effected by their foolishness. This is outright terrible, and anyone who does not like this behavior should cancel service immediately.

Windows 10 1903

Hi all.
Well its about time this goes up.
So the update came out yesterday a few things to note.
In some systems I updated, system restore was turned off and needs to be turned back on.
In all systems after first boot the system was in a weird locked up mode and needed to be turned off then back on again.
After updating, entering a folder may not show its contents, if you are in a tree of folders on any drive, hit down arrow once and enter and open something up then it should display.
In some cases, I have found folders not viewing or displaying right tab and shift tab a couple times and they will appear.
The downloads history pain sucks, tab about the view ribbon and you should be able to sort things by all sorts of things, select the option none and most of that will be gone.
Everything else seems to work though the system seems to have a few fan spikes from time to time especially at startup.
All apps or a great load of them for ms are updated in store including store itself.
When updating, always download the media creation tool, run it, make a drive, and then
run the setup, select to not download updates as this seems to cause the program to lock itself waiting for a responce from the server, interestingly you can happily do this at normal speeds from ms own servers after you update.
Running windows upgrade assistant will eventually cause a slow down and then eventual lock up of the program at 99%.
For now and until they fix it, updating due to issues with setting up from a usb stick may cause the installer to switch all drives around so right now it won’t even try to even run when you have a drive inserted.
Instead make a folder on a drive in the system call it esd, copy the contents of your drive to esd run setup with the drive or drives out of the system and it will run.
On newer installs of the os windows will now have a reserved storage option enabled, which is supposed to be used by windows itself for better performance with updates and junk files.
It can be as much as 7gb of space, and windows says it could be bigger so in a worse case scenario windows could take over your drive and get rid of anything it needs for itself.
Even if it doesn’t after 1809 I wouldn’t put it past the os to delete all drives and make them windows reserved for itself if it wanted.
So go here

How to disable ‘Reserved Storage’ on Windows 10


Look at the keys mentioned and make sure that thing is off.
Remember, if you like me use winamp as your chip player and adlib and had to reassociated msc files with mmc.exe before, you will find that .msc files are unknown to the os because of the way we sort of forced windows to be.
Load regedit, and search for mmc.exe
tab once to the tree view, find the do not open key and delete it.
Then you should be able to associate mmc.exe with msc files and be done with that remember not to associate winamp with msc files.
If you have msc files which are media, open them inside the player.
Until I hear back from its makers assuming my mail does get read, ribbon disabler is disabled and just won’t work.
So you will have to deal with the crappy windows shell till it is fixed.
The home tab has some of the edit functions and new functions, all the other keys work as expected.
All features and languages have been transfered for you and there was only 1 feature to install infrared support to windows.
A reminder to have your display and soundcard and other drivers handy just in case.
For the intel unit I installed things last night an old asus workstation it didn’t appear I needed to do anything.
However on my amd workstation I currently use while there was sound it didn’t sound right.
Luckily refreshing the driver from hp for 1809 worked well enough but is still slightly different.
A reminder to all amd users for right now, that amd 2019.5.1 just won’t work no matter what os you are running, it simply will lock things and just suck and not work and you will have to restore.
Currently the recommended amd driver version for compatability right now is 2019.4.1 so install that and remember to go to preffs and turn off overlays so the key doesn’t conflict with file replacement opperations.
Please remember to deactivate your eloquence and vocaliser and other speech synth licences before you install the program or you will loose them.
Please note that if you use resilio sync your configurations will be destroyed so remember to have your keys so you can put them in again.
Please remember to check all services, ie dropbox, for dropbox account settings, security then hit t and unlink any ghost devices which havn’t updated in the last hour if they are and close down any sessions that are not running right now.
Be prepaired to get warnings from services, icloud, etc you shouldn’t but who knows.
Please remember to check for store and other program updates.
Google chrome has one but nothing else right now.
Please rerun adobe reader after you update so it can register itself.
When first run windows installer will appear for a short while while the program configures itself.
Windows this time has kept a lot of settings bar autoplay an and a few things like that saved.

the interesting net thing

Hi all.
Well, as I sip my morning coffee I began as usual with my daily digest of my news feed.
There was an opinion piece about the net, and how with the introduction of the iphone and other smart devices that others could use it and not just those that knew how.
And that this opening of the net opened it up to the world and all the worlds problems.
I must admit, that I guess with all the net mirroring the real world we will get real world issues on the net.
Big companies springing up all over the show, social networking driving the world, and all that.
We have big companies like google and amazon pulling our data for who knows, data is the new currency.
I guess it could be all doom and gloom, but who knows.
Right now the net mirrors the real world.
There are 2 differences between the real world and the net though.
No need to breathe, sleep, or eat.
You can be anything or anyone, and can do whatever you want almost.
A lot of the laws that would usually bind us to the real world offline either don’t apply or have not been written yet.
A big issue with the net is when you translate a borderless world to the physical one it gets a bit complex.
I must say back in 1995-6, the net for me was an interesting place.
You did email, a few sound downloads, maybe some music but still mucked round with software on cds.
No blogs, no social net, no game adiction as such.
The computer was something you used for whatever but it wasn’t your life.
I used to run programs to get music, in fact I had to download something and was asked to install a program for advertising, I did, and every day for a month I got emails and other popups asking me to listen and rate music.
At the end of that month I got a mail to put my name and address in a form, and would be sent a cd of music.
I did, and I have the cd and well it wasn’t exactly the music I wanted but it was interesting.
Several other adds and give aways graced my system till 2003 or so and things just rocked.
Now days its to dangerous to run x file and view the funny flash video, or run that attachment from your friends, or put your address and name into a servey link from your website or a random site and expect things.
We have spam, malware, unwanted software and ransomware to be concerned about now.
The net back then was simple and well it just was.
I know that a lot of negative opinion exists on the net, but there are good things to.
Colaberation and inclusiveness to some extent still exists.
With the cloud, there is free email anywhere, shopping, and well you can find and get almost everything.
Of course, there are the issues to.
Ie your shops know what you buy and can use it for advertising.
Thing is, suppose you don’t mind and or are happy with it being so.
No one has asked the questions on that.
In my supermarket, my supermarket knows when I swipe my club card what I got and what I may want in the future.
So do my online stores.
Yeah that can encourage impulsive buying, but you don’t need everything and once you know x store sells x thing then you can note it down for later.
There are lots of good things about the net, the same as in the real world, and just like the real world there is a lot of bad things to.
Of course, one thing to note is that what we call the net, isn’t the entire net.
There is the dark net where all the bad people are and other things, but who knows.
Point is with all these so called bad guys and stuff about, there are seedy bits of the world same with the net.
The net we can se isn’t the entire net, and we may not see the entire net just a bit of it the bit we want.
There are of course a few things we will have to come to grips, and its not the big data and companies.
Our devices are our friends, but if anyone has watched the matrix, they are dangerous.
There is almost no need to leave.
We use our devices wrecklessly.
Look at the articles in this blog about kids and adults overusing their devices.
Studdies say looking at and using devices constantly is changing our brains, our eyes, and our minds and not all of them good.
I have been there, working late into the afternoon playing something online only to realise that if I don’t actually get sort of ready for the night time when my care person comes its going to be a bit embarassing to still be in pjs and not excercised, or anything.
But at least I could get out and eventually did.
There are people that are stuck online, died online, etc.
I have noticed people walking on the beach, smoking, and using a device at the same time.
I have to tell my family off for using their devices at social gatherings, at dinner or at functions and not talking to us.
My latest one came just before I was doing the comment on articles 2 weeks back.
I was doing one of my 3 walks I do each week with friends and was sitting down with my japanese pork don bury lunch.
Well there was this family.
The mother was sitting down using her device, the dad was to and the kid.
To shut the kid up they got him to play a game, the game was at full volume and the guy was just using the device and not looking round him.
There are banns of devices in schools and the like now.
To be honest, eventually if we handle ourselves right it will all pan out ok.
However, the net is everywhere and thats good and bad.
That out the way though, we actually need some rules for the net.
As I said, babies and yung children except in certain situations, education maybe, shouldn’t be on the net, certainly not social networks.
Teenagers well who knows.
Right now if you are born online you will never leave.
When I was 20 years old, I struggled to leave.
My family were mostly offline, my grandparents not having even heard of the net and I made myself normalise to an extent.
I had been outside, but I did feel the pull of the net.
Always sunny, and no issues anywhere.
Now days I have found my own niche.
While I do read twitter posts I don’t use facebook or twitter, just wordpress.
I email, but don’t skype much, I use bt sync for some stuff and dropbox for some stuff.
I have a reasonable workstation and the like.
I still use external storage and cds.
I know people that don’t but I still like the feel of hard plastic the same as I like the latest digitals.
And I don’t see myself changing any time soon.
I don’t care for subscriptions and only watch local tv but thats changing so who knows.

Is technology changing too fast

Hi all,

Well, there is a discussion on one of the distribution lists on Live Wire about technology. Thats all well and good until you include those people who for one reason or another are not able, or not capable for any reason, to use the technology of today.

I’m not saying that they are completely out of society, however, they must be able to keep up at some level. Within the next 10-20 years, technology will change in such a way where things older people grew up with will definitely be harder to find.

Let me give you an example. Someone went looking for a radio for me so I can take it with me to enjoy the ball game(s) that I may be attending. This radio is a battery operated radio, and it does work. It was definitely hard to find this radio.

I was very happy to hear that cassettes and CD Players and the players for cassettes still being able to be baught. The people who need them are those who can’t use digital equipment because they’re afraid of change, or they have issues learning or other types of issues with learning the new technology. I definitely feel for them, and I’m saddened that we’re moving toward such a point in our lives.

While I’m technologically sound, I feel that there are plenty of people who are not, for whatever their reasons. Tech is not going to slow down for thenm. They need to learn at their own pace, or find themselves behind.

Do you have thoughts? What are they?

Windows Defender, does it do a good job?

Hello folks,

I had a very interesting issue with my computer. For some reason, a system scan yielded some potential severe threats which Windows Defender only found on a full system scan, not the default scan. After that scan, I ran an offline scan to determine if there was anything else. After the reboot, I was still having the issue of not being able to open anything from the start menu.

To solve this, I went over to Trend Micro’s House call page and decided to download and run it. It can be run in conjunction with other software already installed. After several minutes even though it only went through as far as the users temp directory, it seemed to have cleared up whatever issue I was having. I even did a couple of reboots to make sure and things are OK.

I’m thinking that something got picked up that was removed, although no threats were found from the scan, or it fixed an error with the drive itself when scanning things. I just found this weird. Do you think Windows Defender is still good? Its the only accessible piece of software besides house call that is accessible to us. Trend Micro also has an app within house call called Ransomware buster which can protect files in directories. Don’t know how accessible that is, but that was very interesting. Thoughts?

new dropbox rules

This is a coppy of a post I put on lists about dropbox, I will replicate it on my blog to.

From march this year, all basic accounts are limited to 3
devices.

What does that mean?

Nothing, except that dropbox remembers every device and session
ever made.

So you reformat your computer or change your account name, or
get another computer and don’t unlink first, your device becomes
a ghost device same with app programs, and brouser sessions.

1.  sign into dropbox.

The easiest way to do this is to login with your own client,
click the tray icon and launch dropbox.

Now near the top of the page is a menu called my account hit
space on that, scroll down to settings, hit shift space to exit
forms mode then hit enter.

Don’t move about else things will just not work right.

Now dropbox settings load.

hit control home for the top of the page then h.

2.  select security tab, in the same way, enter forms mode once
you scroll down to the list of tabs, and locate security.

get out of forms mode and hit enter.

Next control home again.

then hit t.

3.  The next thing to do is locate every session in the first
table which has an end session button it and hit the space bar
till they are all gone.

Next  locate the device tree which is directly below the brouser
treeview.

The first device in the list is your device.

scroll to the end of that list.

Every device you have ever linked including every ghost device
linked in the past will exist, I had 6, my dad had 2.

Hit unlink button on all the devices bar the one that says its
been modified in the last hour.

Every other device will have a time when it was last valid.

Finally go through the steps of going to my account, then
settingss however next select the connected apps view.

Then disconnect every app you don’t use and service.

If you need to link devices take note of the devices you want to
connect.

A basic user can connect up to 3 devices.

Those can be a computer, a phone and one other device or 3
computers.

You can buy, but to be honest, if you get this warning and are
only using 1 device, then you probably have a lot of ghost
devices.

I’d also update your password at this time if you have forgotten
it if you havn’t allready.

I’d also check to see if you know what all the devices you have
are, if you find something you don’t know, then chances are
someone has hacked your account or you linked to a device
somewhere else.

In a way this while annoying is good in a way.

I had no idea dropbox kept all devices from all reformats and
all times I had changed dropbox.

I had 6 devices, 1 is my device I had.

The next one before that was my old win7 device which I may
relink later.

The rest were my win7 and xp devices and their reformats
including profile changes etc.

My apps were not needed ones and I clobbered them.

As for my brouser sessions including the current one there were
19 others which were still signed in from devices that were no
longer active.

In the case of my dad’s system, there were 2 devices, the
current one, and an older instance of the same device which
existed before it, its good to know that I was able to kill
things.

Now I know about this, if I need to reformat my first thing
after I get back in is to kill the ghost devices that linger
inactive after the fact.

This actually is a good reason to check security on my account
if anything else.

Its worth noting that if you need more space and upgrade you
won’t have to bother with this though even if you do knowing
what I had, its worth looking at the site anyway.

I didn’t need all those 20 sessions logged in at once, nore did
I need the 6 devices 4 of which were ghosts of old linked
devices and one which is not on the network.

I guess knowing that I could link that one but even so I will be
carefull to check every linked system I service to make     sure
its all clear of stuff that shouldn’t be on it.

Blog update

Hi all,

It has come to my attention that clicking on the titles or the comments links had some issues. I saw this yesterday but didn’t get a moment to look at it. Got an email from my other admin here on the blog, and one of the plug ins has been removed. it was used to allow us to post to social media, but I’ve set up dlvr.it to assist for twitter and linked in. We still allow you to post your favorites to social media through other plug ins that are still active.

Thanks Shaun, for your continued support and helping fix the error.

I’ve just been deleted from mytelespace

I’ve been on MyTelespace since its beginning. It was born on March 24, 2008.

I’ve enjoyed the system, and quit participating on the main bulletine board since it had turned in to a bashing board.

While I’ve been on the system, I’d make suggestions what could be changed, and even respect the parent company who runs MyTelespace.

Several weeks ago, MyTelespace added a co-administrator. The name of that person is not important, because people can come and go, and I do not have anything bad to say about the administration as a whole.

The only problem I do have is the shows that the administration gets involved in. Both people who administer the system now run bashing and trashing shows. Thats my only problem. This is their choice, and I respect that choice.

I picked up a voice mail this morning saying that I was targeted on one of the administrators shows. I politely responded telling the caller that the info was probably false, and inaccurate. People will believe whatever they want, and that is the choice each individual has when calling a telephone system.

This afternoon, I got a voice mail indicating that I was deleted. Administration didn’t reach out to tell me what rule(s) I might have violated so I may correct it.

The only reason that I’m posting about it here on the tech blog is because I’ve talked about the system on my podcast. Now, you can find me on Live Wire where my box number is 2276.

I have found it a pleasure to be on MyTelespace, and I always knew that it was a free system so anyone can be deleted for any reason they felt like. While I don’t agree with that practice, its like a job. You can be hired, then fired for whatever reason they see fit.

Hopefully the system can survive, but then again, they may not survive, depending on certain factors including how the administration makes their money.

I understand but have never been able to confirm or deny it, that MyTelespace is part of the traffic pumping system, and if changes to that occur, then that system won’t survive.

Hopefully, people will come over to live wire, and communicate with me, and I leave that the choice of the reader or caller of the system.

Ground Zero has been closed

Hello everyone,

This is an important announcement that I am passing along to you. On an earlier podcast, I talked about two systems that I have been on. The first is Livewire. The second is Ground Zero.

Today, March 10, 2019: Live Wire’s Amadeus announced that he is closing Ground Zero.

Instead of giving you the full announcement via text, I invite you to call the phollowing phone number: 631-686-8600 for the entire details. The message takes a couple of minutes to play, and I’ll endeavor to see if I can play the full announcement on my podcast.

If you had a box on both systems, please use your box on Live Wire.

If you had a popular bulletine board, Amadeus says that he’ll move it over for you.

Thanks for your support of reading the blog, and seeing what I have to offer. I’ll have more soon.

Happy New Year from the Jared Rimer network

As the new year is starting, I’m interested in hearing your predictions. So far, my prediction on Philmore Productions has been wrong, but I feel with the many mistakes this company has made, its just a matter of time. You can’t be in business with as many mistakes including trash talking this company has done.
The landscape discussed in podcast 300 has changed, both for assistive tech as well as security and other aspects of life. I’m curious on what thoughts you have on what might change. Main Menu a program as part of ACB Radio’s channels, had a show for year end. The whole team was a part of it, and it will be on the RSS feed as part of their podcast feeds.

In podcast 300, I covered the last several years of content, and how we’re trying to branch our content out to cover lots of stuff. I’m curious on what content you’d like to see?

My predictions:

We may see breaches that could effect one country as a whole, if other breaches has not shown that to possibly be the case.

We’ll see at some point, a shift in the way assistive tech works with the computers of the future. We’ll probably have a bigger threat landscape, and the assistive tech companies, no matter which one, will have to double their efforts to make sure our data is as secure as possible, and the software we use is patched from any potential vulnerabilities. If it wasn’t known, GW Micro had a main script that was changed and it caused a big issue on who did it, and I don’t know if we ever found out. Since GW Micro’s closing, people may try to go after JFW or NVDA in the same way, figuring out how to push an update that could do something we as users don’t want. We’ve got to figure out how these things can be prevented.

I’m curious on your thoughts, so please post those comments.

Hi.
Well in theory, if there are issues with say a criminal, and the government/ the law want to look at it I have no issue with them doing so.
I don’t have anything to hide.
Backdoors in software and hardware though, not sure if you want that to be a thing as such.
Secure accounts in all things so the government can look if they need or a way maybe then.
But firstly can you trust the government to be secure.
There have been a lot of breaches in some of our government’s systems, especially under high load where the system has spewed the wrong data to someone else.
Next, there are governments in general, look at china, even if this is not fully true.
How do you trust the government to handle it if they need your data for something and not just get it and use it for no reason what so ever.
Case in point, an article in the local paper, had some government worker get access to someone’s data or files for something.
Not content to read it, he put all sorts of garbage in the files, crimes that the person hadn’t done, etc, he was caught of course.
But there are governments that are not as transparent as ours, that could do a lot of dammage.
Next, while I am happy for the government to get access to my data when they wish they sort of do it to bits of that anyway, are they secure.
In fact, taking out all the internal issues, if I were a hacker I’d go after the governmental databases so I could pull their backdoor passwords and use them.
Especially if they had to have them stored somewhere well.
I think the only way this would work at all, was if there was a definite reason to do so.
When that eventuated, a temperary account or whatever was created.
There would have to be limits on that, when it was destroyed, it wouldn’t last for ever, if there was nothing to answer for that was destroyed immediately.
But never saved and only certain people had access.
Even if a hacker got access to it, they couldn’t or shouldn’t have the ability to change the account passwords, or even delete the account that would be done somewhere else.
You would only have access to what you needed.
Could someone do something within the loophole created.
If there were procedures on what happened and when, then there probably wouldn’t be one of those.
But its all how they are structured.
Becides all this though articles have proven that big companies like facebook and maybe others are selling the data you have put up there.
I’d imagine that government backdoors could become a valuable asset.
It wouldn’t surprise me if we get more security things to fix after supposed government servers got hacked.
The only reason most of us normal people are safe is we don’t have that much cash, hackers want businesses mainly not us.
But governments start doing that sort of thing they will be targets.
It may work, lets hope it does.
I have had various issues along the lines where government access is concerned, even though I allowed it.
Things like trying to change something with an inaccessible website, only toh ave to use the phone to make that info.
After doing so messing it up and correcting it over the phone.
The data mysteriously vanishing as well as my call to fix it.
The issues not being fixed, and its happened before.
This time, what was worse the government decided to cut off funding for me because of something.
There is a process to follow to get things back but they wanted to get me to proove myself and try to screw me over.
Luckily I was able to get some help and they decided to not persue doing that as I was over my head at that point.
It would be nice if a system like this worked to the bennifit of all consumers and governments.
But the governments rarely have a straight road on any of this.
Excluding issues inside, breaches and the like, people can make mistakes.
In my case, I allowed access to my data, it was secured it was fine.
But no one on the desk either the support switchboard and the level2 case support seemed to know much over guidelines.
Sadly thats as far as I was ever able to get to.
And while yes things got reported, no communication that anything was done.
And while I do need to give access for that data, its obvious thatcustomer service is not on the piority for those that troubleshoot.
The fact is, people want to know why you need access, then its usually ok.
Governments don’t seem to want to communicate or some of them don’t or at least clearly and regularly.
In fact, while my issues were small in comparison to if I had committed an actual offence, there have been articles again in the local paper where someone has a problem, they try to get it fixed, and the government get nasty and screw them over.
It concerns me that even with best intentions, even with the most secured vetted environment and workforce and all that we will still have issues.
Thats fine, but how many issues can the government or service handle without it overwhelming them.
Then you ask why are the government spying on everyone for no good reason.
At which point you start losing trust big time.
For me while I havn’t lost all the trust I have in the income service part of the government, I am now inclined to not take them as seriously as I once would have.
I know that they don’t want to solve issues I report to them and if things get bad, its my fault not them.
So while I will report what I must within law, its not going to be something I will do because I want to.
There are so many fishing mails, you would never know what is truth.

Happy thanksgiving from the Jared Rimer network

There could be a change in plan where the podcast will be released through TTS introductions and endings, but for this post, lets wonder what people are thankful for this year in tech.

While I was saddened on the closing of GW Micro, I’m happy for two things within the past year.

  • Freedom Scientific allowed us to get JFW for free even upgrading my so-out-of-date license.
  • We’ve got another option in NVDA

The security aspect of this year has been nothing but interesting. I just can’t fathem what the next year will bring with all of the DDOS attacks and botnet activities.

I’m thankful for the meriad of arrests that we’ve seen in the tech field for cybercrime activity. Let it be a deterant to those of us who would want or think about doing such activity. In no way am I saying I’m thinking of doing anything, however, I’d do it for the fun of it if I were to do it, not to harm people. Poking around, maybe.

What are you thankful for this year in tech?
